Generally speaking, I don't have an opinion on Ellen. She's okay. I don't watch daytime television. But this whole debate with the dog? Bad form. Bad fucking form. It's called a contract. If you don't feel like following it, tough cookies, you got smacked by the system. Don't go on live telelvision just because you lost because you weren't paying attention. Now that organization is shut down and the co-founders are getting death threats. Great job, Ellen. It's unfortunate that this good organization and the dogs and families they work to help are screwed because you didn't bother to read before signing or felt like your deed of goodness was above the contract/law. To be fair, I don't know what reason she gives for not following the contract, but now she's sobbing on television and saying 'DON'T THEY HAVE A HEART' or some shite like that and really, I have no sympathy. I love animals. I fully support people get animals for their families. But not that way.

By the way, I'm pretty sure all of this from me is because a.) my mother made me like judge shows, and those are like, ALL ABOUT broken contracts and such, and b.) working in a law office.
